the man that shot me, major hassan will be the man cross examining me. that's a huge challenge. >> reporter: hassan, who was also shot, is in a wheelchair and now wears a beard citing his muslim believes. he has not denied being the gunman and asked to plead guilty, but that was prohibited under military law because prosecutors are seeking the death penalty. he will be allowed to testify on his own behalf, but the judge denied his request to argue that he shot at u.s. soldiers to prevent taliban fighters from being killed in afghanistan. >> i believe that the judge made it quite clear that if he starts to grand stand in any way and steps away from the rules of court, his ability to represent himself will be revoked, and his defense counsel will step in and represent him. >> reporter: many of the shooting survivors are expected to testify and are petitioning the u.s. government to classify the incident as an act of terror so they can get combat-related benefits. many are angry that hassan is still being paid his military salary, totaling about $300,000 since his arrest. the judg

president of iran hassan rourhani. >> we are prepared seriously and without wasting time to enter negotiations with the other side which are serious and substantive. >> so what do you think? is this new president of iran more moderate than ahmadinejad? >> he's less colorful than al qaeda -- ahmadinejad. but doesn't mean he's less of this group. in regard to the nuclear program, they are all on the same page. they're trying to find the most effective way to defy and defeat the whole world. so i think the real issue -- i cannot in the way of someone wants to talk to them or try to talk to them. but any contact with them, any negotiation with the new limits in a way that will make sure that the strategic clarity of the need to block iran from turning nuclear will be kept in mind so that long before starting 2014, iranians should know, probably behind closed doors. no need to embarrass them in public. they should know that either they are serious about putting an end to the nuclear military program or else. >> the form he defense minister of israel, the former prime minister of israel
